Southill Primary School

"A caring, family school"

Welcome to Southill Lower School

I warmly invite you to use our website as a window through which to view our school.

At Southill Lower School we have created a friendly, caring and supportive environment that encourages our children to fully learn, develop and share a love of learning.  This ethos creates a happy and safe school where all our children are able to make a flying start towards reaching their potential.  We are also a values led school where all members of the community are respected.  Each month we focus on a different value and celebrate when children demonstrate it, whether inside or outside school.

We are fortunate to be based in an idyllic village setting.  As well as a playground area, we have a wildlife garden and pond area that all classes access. Our talented staff use their expertise to extend the opportunities of our pupils both inside and outside the classroom.

Our strong, committed governing body fully supports the school in providing the best possible educational opportunities for all. We have strong links with the Redborne Sports Partnership, which helps us to provide an extended and rich educational experience for our pupils.

Please enjoy finding out about our school on our website. If you would like to arrange a visit we would be delighted to arrange this for you, these can be arranged by contacting the School Office. Alternatively, please see a link to our internal virtual tour here  https://tours.e4education.co.uk/southill_lower_school/

Best Wishes,
James Adkins, Executive Headteacher

E-Petition

Deadline - 29 July 2022

I would like to bring to your attention a petition for traffic calming and parking measures along School Lane, Southill.

We are aware of the issues with parking and safety along School Lane, especially at school drop off and pick up times.  Due to some of these issues being due to parents/carers having to drop off/collect their children we have had an unofficial one-way system implemented for a while now and although this helps with school traffic, other road users are unaware of this and it can sometimes cause problems.  

 We have worked with local residents for some time and recently approached Southill Parish Council to request help with a request for School Lane to be made one-way from the junction by the cemetery down to High Street by the playing field.

 Unfortunately, they are unable to help but suggested a petition be put forward with our ideas.  Southill Lower School, on the advice of the Parish Council, have now drawn up an e-petition to request the following:

- School Lane be made one-way as above

- Grass verges along the side of the road by the playing field removed and replaced with parking bays.

If both of the above where to be implemented we would hope School Lane would be:

- safer for all

- issues with grass verges being churned up removed

- Parents/carers not blocking residents drives/access areas

To view the full petition and add your signature, please visit:

The e-petition will close on the 29 July 2022 and requires 100 electronic signatures to be progress any further.  Please show your support.

Thank you
